Painted Boy by Alicia Adamopoulos

Canvas Prints

Available to buy on…

This is a “painted with light” image with a texture layer added.

My son was sitting still in a completely black room for a 12 second exposure with the camera on a tripod while I waved a small light around to ‘expose’ him and create the image.


solitary, light, texture, boy, alone, sit

I like to experiment with colour and texture to a degree and also put an individual twist into what I’m shooting. My preferred subjects are people and animals.

    It is a brilliant work of photographic art. This technique creates an amazing depth and rich tonality. It is a beautiful portrait.

    Oh – this is so beautiful. And I’m very impressed by him sitting still for 12 secs! Do you know how HARD that has got to be??? Gorgeous image.

  • Oh, I know how hard it is. He would only let me take two photos before he got annoyed at me for making him sit still. Lucky for me, the first shot worked. ;)
